What are you doing on December 22nd?

Perhaps it's a bit early for you to answer that. No matter. This is something nearly everyone could spare five minutes to do, and they'll probably be doing it anyway. Literally. You can do it alone or with a partner, but please, don't do it with the family pets.

It won't hurt you, unless you want it to



I'm playing around with this new layout. I like the new beta blogger features, and recommend it, but also warn potential users that you will spend most of your blogging time playing with it and never actually post anything. I'm breaking that cycle though. One thing that may or may not be helpful for those interested, the picture feature seems to be no better on the beta version.
Things have been going well enough in my corner. I am getting ready to come out to Colorado next week, and feel the usual mounting excitement that comes with that until I have to deal with trying to find time to see everyone. It will be good to see the mountains again, either way. And family and friends.

Tonight I brought home another German Shepherd named Zeta, for a trial period to see if she will fit into our family. A coworker propositioned me at the end of the day. She's a very beautiful dog. She makes Anya look like a little midget and not nearly as wolf like as I used to think.

There are things brewing in the near future that I'm not going to talk about just yet, but if they work out, there will be many changes ahead. Good ones. Changes That Do Not, I repeat, Do Not involve child bearing or anything of that nature.


I've been waiting for this

Mark always makes me smile. I was going to do a nice long post about how I felt the veil of darkness being lifted just a little bit from our daily conciousness, in this country. I never really got around to it though. Nevertheless, it does feel happier, lighter and more hopeful the past few days. Perhaps it's all my perception, but it was what a lot of people needed. The shifting and swinging of a pendulum.
We can hope, right?
My sentiments, exactly


Super-hero of domesticity or work of art?

Cassie was good enough to animate part of my closet door story. She had recommended that I comment on some of the features but I think I'll leave it to the imagination. The only thing I will add is that I SO wish they made size 3-U.S. Docs for adults.
